Easy Chicken Broccoli Stir Fry

Once a week we get food delivered to our door. Every sunday to be exact. It’s something my mother did when I was growing up as a way to treat everyone for all the hard work done that week.
It was always really exciting because my brother and I got to pick what type of food we were having for dinner – usually a toss between pizza, KFC or McDonald’s. Dinner was eaten in front of the television with TV tray tables and a glass of barley iced tea (mugicha).

It was the best and most relaxing day – fond memories I have of my childhood, thanks to the most amazing and fun mother!

Nowadays, delivery mostly consists of Asian food. Okay, sometimes we’ll get falafels or a pizza, but I’d say 85% of the time we have either Malaysian, Chinese or Japanese. And when it’s not sunday-delivery-day, we make our own quick and easy Asian menu consisting of easy dishes like this chicken broccoli stir fry.

YUM!

I know I’ve said this many times before but I must reiterate how simple and easy stir fries are to make – and they taste so good! It doesn’t get any easier and delicious than a chicken broccoli stir fry cooked with garlic, ginger, a little soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar and sesame oil.

Savory with a little sweetness and nuttiness – you’ll love this.

I served this chicken broccoli stir fry with leftover pancit noodles but you can pair it with plain white rice, brown rice, egg noodles, spaghetti and even quinoa.
